    With all due respect, I would not attempt, or advise others to make this with the wheel you are using,

    Bicycle wheels are NOT engineered to rotate at highway speeds!

    Same goes for the tires/tyres.

    Bicycle wheels are notoriously neglected, and are frequently found to have little to no grease in the bearings.

    What size universal (socket) joint? Avoid cheap Chinese u-joints. Use Snap-on, Craftsman, etc.

    Again, bicycle parts are NOT meant for sustained high speed use!

    I appreciate your concerns ,
    Your are correct ,
    this was not my first choice , this is why I made the wheel fork holder separate than the rest of the frame in order to replace the whole Fork/ Wheel assembly when a better/bigger wheel available ,I actually rushed completing the project just for the sake of seeing it in action ,I admit that more adjustments are required..

    Thanks again

    So, have you put a lot of miles on the trailer? Did you wind up putting a different wheel (or any other changes) to it?
